LOS ANGELES (AP) — It might have been another legendary party at the Playboy Mansion, except Hugh Hefner didn't make an appearance.
The Playboy founder was a no-show Tuesday night at a celebration of the new Amazon series about his life, "American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story." His youngest son, 25-year-old Cooper Hefner, who became Playboy's chief creative officer last year, hosted the mansion party to screen an episode from the 10-part series, premiering Friday.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Naked women are back in Playboy magazine, ending a year-old ban on the nudity that made the magazine famous.
Playboy celebrated the reversal on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #NakedIsNormal.
The about-face came Monday with the release of Playboy's March-April issue. The 63-year-old magazine had banished naked women from its print edition because it felt the content had become passe in an era of online porn that is just a click away on personal computers and smartphones.
